  • application shutdown on rr exit..

    Now, does anyone experience that some of the ext. embedded app doesn't get shutdown when you exit RR?

    It closes ig4, and other plugins..winamp most of the time.. even closes mpc, but, some of the application, it doesn't.... Is this a known issue, or am i doing something wrong? I like to have everything close on rr exit... i also set that flag in rrconfig too... What am i doing wrong?

    Thanks. shoot.. screwed up the title... sorry....

    You can edit the thread title by double clicking it in the subforum or by changing to the more advanced editor.

    I have an issue where it sometimes doesn't want to close winamp. For example; I'll make some changes in skineditor, and load RR, close rr, make more changes, load rr to test and since winamp didn't close properly, there are two instances, and rr doesn't know which one to pull info from. So I have to open up task manager, close all instances of winamp, and restart RR. I don't seem to have this issue with any other program, RR closes them fine, just winamp. I can try the "CLOSEWINAMP" code, but I test a lot of skins, and it's fairly annoying to add that to every skin I test.

    @OP - from the skincommands.txt:

    "CLOSEWINDOW" - This allows you to close any running application based on the given window title. The application may request the user to save any unsaved data before closing, so beware.
    Example: "CLOSEWINDOW;Notepad"
    So whatever applications are having issues, just put this code after double pipes || to close out the stuff that RR didn't (but RR should just close anything that is embedded) on your exit button.

      I can live with the way wimamp not being consistent.. but, other applications it just won't close at all... I want something like this monkeyracer, "shutdown||closewindow" but, that wouldnt' work as you know.. Is there something like this, "closeAllOpenWindows"?

        it would be:

        "SHUTDOWN||CLOSEWINDOW;"

        This would close EVERY open window, I haven't tested it, but with nothing after the semicolon rr will tell windows to close any program with a windows name. (I think you just need to add the semicolon to the code.)

        or to close specific windows:

        "EXIT||CLOSEWINDOW;Notepad||CLOSEWINDOW;Inbox||CLO SEWINAMP" And so on, you shouldn't have more than a few programs embedded into your skin, so it shouldn't be too hard to do this.

          In rr.ini:

          closeapps=true|false
          Close any open embedded applications on exit

              What version of RR are you using?

              I use a few external apps (VAG-COM, System Manager, Filemanger, Notepad, etc.) embedded and they all close when I exit RR.

                  If that's the only program that doesn't close, either add the windows name to
                  embedapplist=[windows name]
                  in rr.ini,
                  or use the CLOSEWINDOW;[windows name]

                  Just replace the [windows name] with what the actual windows name is (winspector spy will help find this)

                    some app's dont close at all when exiting, freefone, imageviewer, and rainlendar are the ones i know for sure they always keep running. sonic added a command 'ONEXIT" (i think)to one of his beta's, hope it makes it to the official soon.

                      monkeyracer, i already have tried ur suggestion.. it didn't do it on shutdown.. it might close it when exiting a skin, but that's not what i want... i want it to happen when i close RR.... RR is big daddy... daddy says everyone go to bed... then it's a nap time for everyone, no BUT..

                      el,
                      so, it's a known thing.... well... guess i have to wait for sonic's magic command too then.....


                      thanks guys..

                        Manually kill a task

                        Its not a perfect sollution, but works perfectly for me. I simply wrote a small script, that I can pass the name of a task to, and it will kill it.

                        To Kill Winamp for instance, I have the following line in my Exectbl.ini:

                        Code:
                        "KillWinamp","RunQ;$skinpath$scripts\Kill_Task.exe|winamp.exe"
                        On the Exit button in my skin, I have:

                        Code:
                         "KillWinamp||QUIT"
                        This way when I close RR, Winamp is forced to close.

                        Simply change the winamp.exe to any process you want to kill and create more lines in the exectbl for each thing you want to be sure is closed, Rainlender for instnace:

                        Code:
                        "KillRainlender","RunQ;$skinpath$scripts\Kill_Task.exe|Rainlender.exe"
                        SO now your exit button would have the following code to close both:

                        Code:
                         "KillRainlender||KillRainlender||QUIT"
                        Attached it the zipped up .exe
                        Attached Files

                            Can we all use that little TaskKiller .. it would be very useful ?

                            Thanks

                              Try to have RoadRunner start the program.

                              Normally any program started as a child of another program will close when the parent closes (unless Guino has down something special to start external Programs)
